Please mark Monday, May 13th in your calendar!

Join us at an expert panel discussion on the Emerald Ash Borer beetle in Kanata and the rest of Ottawa.

The panel will feature Joe Meating from BioForest, Sean Barker from and Bruce Gill from the  Canadian Food Inspection Agency.  Dr. Curtis Lavoie from CHEO will be  joining the panel to comment on the health benefits of trees and what this epidemic will mean to the future health of Ottawa residents.  We can ask the experts questions afterwards.

Arrive early to speak 1-on-1 with tree experts before the panel discussion begins. Get the facts for your own situation of Ash trees on your property, and the process and costs of having their trees treated.

Note - If anyone has any doubts that the Emerald Ash Borer will inevitably cause the loss of at least 20% of the urban tree canopy over the next 3 to 5 years, please read Mark Cullen's recent article in the Citizen - "Kiss your ash goodbye"

All attendees will be entered into a draw for a FREE TreeAzin treatment from
